Meeting Promises Those Who Attend.

Clerk Oilier Matters
oT Interest.
The city council will meet this ovcnlnR.
Considerable interest has been excited among
the citizens In regard to this meeting , from
this fact that tonight Is the tirno whluh is
llxed by law for the election of street com
missioner and chlof of the fire department.
It Is probable tlioro will also bo an attempt
made to elect a deputy city cleric.
There is a great deal of uncertainty con
nected with the results of the election , and
no one would lllto to look through the dim
ness of the next twenty-four hours and see
what is going to bo done than the candidates
for the position of chlof of the flro ilopu-t-
ment. Tbo contest bos prncllcully nar
rowed itself down to one be
tween two men , Oliver Hague ,
and Frank Levin , the present chief. Levin
thinks his chances era us good as nny one's ,
blithe does not believe a majority of the
counclhncn arc pledged to support any ono In
particular. It ii stated thnt four of the al
dermen have agreed to veto for'n ' , though
none of them have given him nny uledgo that
they would stand by him to the bitter end.
James Bradley , electrician of the lire de
partment was in the race early in the season
when there was some talk of raising the sal-
aiy to $100 per mouth , but when It was de
cided that there would bo no change In the
salary ho cnmo to the conclusion thnt ho did
not want to give up his present & 0 Job for
ono whcro the responsibility and worlr nro
much greater and the pay only a trlCo over
half uOituch more.
An attempt will probably be made to elect
a deputy city clerk , but Mr. Stephen-son
states that ho will not bo the ono to spring
tha subject on the council. Ho proposed the
name of his son as his deputy at the last
regular mooting of the coiincll. but his choice
was not ratified. Since that time the matter
has boon allowed to rest. Mr. Stcphenson
states that hu has examined the ordinances ,
and bo Is convinced that they will allow him
to select his deputy himself , and that
the council has no right to refuse
to ratify his choice except for causa.
He is under bonds to the city to the amount
of $18,000 for the correct discharge of his
own duties and those of his deputy , and under
the circumstances ho thinks hoouphtto have
the riuht to say who that deputy shall bo.
Ou the other hand , it is stated that some of
the members of the council have friends
whom they want to appoint , and they stand
ready to oppose any choice thnt the clerk may
make , unless the candidate may bo of their
own choosing. Ills not likely there will bo
any election until the dend-loclc Is broken and
the clerk-mid the members of the council
come to a satisfactory understanding.
Alderman Wood has resurrected a scheme
which comes to light about once n year , and
will nsk tb/ > council to build an addition to
the city building and to put therein a vault
to hold the vnluaolo papers that are now left'
lying around the ofllccs ready for the burg
lars and the fires that never como. The ad
dition which It Is proposed to build are to DO
largo enough to contain oftlccs for the mayor ,
engineer and assessor. The city Is now put
to an expense of over forty dollars per month
to provide these ofllclals with suitable
oftlccs , and it is claimed that the saving of
runt will soon makeup for the added expense
caused by the building of the addition.
The police department will probably bo up
for discussion. A move is on. foot to cut
down ttio force , and it is stated , though not
oniclnlly , that the cut will bo made.

'Sestorday morning at. about 11 o'clock a
small boy with horror all over his face hunted
up Oftlcer Crafts and stated that there was a
man lying dead on the top of ashed buck of
the government building with blood running ;
out of both sides of his neck , which ho had
evidently punctured .with malice afore
thought. An Investigation was made.
in the mean tiir.o n largo crowd had gath
ered , in the hope of seeing a real live suicide.
Sure enough , the man was there , lylnjr
stretched out at full length nn the roof of
the shed , and the crowd watched every
movement of the ofllccr with the most fever
ish interest as ho scaled the side of the
building. The look of feverish interst
changed to ono of horror a moment later ,
when the oftlccr struck the prostrate object n
sounding blow on its feet , accompanied with
a rather sulphurous exhortation to get up
and out of that. The look of horror gave way
in turn to one of profound disgust , when the
supposed suieldoaroso with a sheepish face
and looked sleepily around him at the crowd
that had evidently gathered for his benefit.
It was found that the young man who had
caused all the excitement was Jasper Hinlloy ,
a stnblo hand. Ho had gene to the top of the
shed to survey the beauties of the Sabbath
morning , and whllo thus engaged ho had
fallen asleep. His coat was linnd with red
llannel , and as the morning breezes toyed
with it the flannel was displayed on each side
of his neck , resembling very closolv a large ,
voluptuous torrent of red blood. The crowd
dispersed without delay , and flvo minutes
later not one could bo found who would ad
mit that he bait over been taken in by a sul-
cido or anybody else.

"Why don't you touch the waterworks
company up in regard to the alleged water
that they nro dishing " to us lately I" was
the query whloh mot a representative of
TUB BKB yesterday afternoon. "I have
drank some pretty burl water in Council
Bluffs In my day , but I don't think I over
before tried \o drink water that required
quite so much chewing. It is enough to
make ono sick to look at it , ana as for health ,
you may tell mo nil you please that Missouri
river clay Is good for tha human
system , but I shall still have my doubts. It
makes me wrathy every time I sea my bill
for water tax coma around , I am willing to
do my share of speculating In real estate , but
when it comes to taking It internally , I want
to draw the lino. The only way I can ac
count for the present state of affairs Is that
the water works company is trying to work
up a sale for some , now kind of filter. " And
the respectable citizen stopped.

"Billy Owens and Judge Jones were us
eloso as the Sinmc&o twins to each other.
The bond that bound them was a friend
ship that only ended with the lifo of
Judge Jones , who died with his boots on
in his own fnro bank , killed by a cowboy
who got the drop on him In a fight over
u disputed bet. One night in May , when
the gtuno 'run light , ' as gumblorg say ,
and Judge Jones hud played in a good
streak of luck for a month , Billy Owens ,
Hushed with 'Old Otard , ' came back to
from his pal-
the faro lay-out sumptuous
aoo of urn und sin. Walking up to his
chum ho said ho said : 'Judgo Jones ,
this is a mighty moan game with these
hundred-dollar pikers around the board.
How much you got in that big safe over
yonder ? ' 'Just 2,000 , in thar , old man , '
opliod tho. judge , 'and that's just
32,000 moro'n you've got the sand in
' '
your craw to try and win. 'An , that's
your littlp gnmo , is it , old Texas never
tire ? ' exclaimed Billy Owens , just full
enough for a 'Ilyor. ' 'I'll just go you
my check on the California bank
for $32,000 , , cohl 'plunkors. " 'Put up or
shut up , Billy , sententiously answered
the Texas judge , ns his steel gray eyes ,
expanding wide , shone like two white
diamonds. Billy Owens walked over to
Iho gamblers' escrotoiro and ayoll
regulated gambling place is never with
out a table railed a'beerotary , ' whcro
pen and ink are ready , and bank
checks , without any particular
bank's name , can alwnys bo found. The
saloon keeper filled up a chock on the
bank of California for & ! 2,000 and signed
it up and walked back to Judge Jones.
"Up to this moment Jones thought
Billy wna foolin' . Ho was mistaken.
"I'll bet this is the pot 0 , 7 , 8 against ,
your safe and contents. ' 'It is well , '
eaid Jones without a stnllo , pulling out a
big safe kov from hib side pockot. and
slapping it down hard In the pot. 'That
represents my wealth , ' said dealer
Jonos. All the other players ceased to
watch the game. The third turn , as the
key laid hugging the check for $ i ,0U ( ) ,
the six , seven , and eight spots came out
of the box. "Busted ! by the everlasting
jumping jingo ! ' yelled the Texas judge ;
but d n my eyes , Billy , you are the
very man I want to win if I must lose. "
"Tho bank broke , and till daylight
Billy Owens made it lively for the boys ,
nnd within a week , the judge , who
closed his bank nnd wont uway. struck
it rich in a placer mine , nnd opened up
a now game more gorgeous than the

An interesting series of articles has just
boon concluded In the Now York Sun on Lin
coln as a General. Under the Initials of J.
II.V. . , the identity of the author of the pa
pers is disguised. But a significant thing in
connection with this discussion Is the fact
that the views therein expressed are prob
ably in accord with these of Eaitor-in-Chlof
Dana , whom it will bn remembered was as
sistant secretary of war during the civil
war. These conclusions were drawn in the
closing paper : it is not to bo contended that
Lincoln , whoso duties asjhead of the govern
ment neccssarially confined him to the con
trol of its military p ollcy , and as commander-
In-chicf of the army and navy to the consld.
erationof questions of satrtegy , or the pen.
era ! direction of campaigns , had over ac
quired a knowledge of tactics. Whllo it
Is indubitable that ho sought to control
the combination of mosses and their
direction upon the vital points of the
confederacy , agnlnst its principal armies ,
and lu this great branch of the military art
developed a hliihor degree of skill than nny of
his generals , it was manifestly out of his
province to manoeuvre the national forces in
the presence of the enemy. What would
have been his success had ho dona this must
always remain a matter of conjecture ; but
considering tils mouesty , his perfect self-ro-
lianco , his foresight , Ills wisdom , his wary
and crafty nature and , above all , his unshak
able resolution. It Is not to bu supposed that ho
would have made a failure as n tactician. Ho
roiiembleu Leo innmnyof his loftier attributes
of character , and was his equal , if not his
superior , lu such as uro possessed In common
by all leaders of men.Vlth the same mili
tary education and experience thcro can bo
scarcely a doubt that ho would hnvo
equalled , if ho had not surpasssed , the fore
most soldier of his tlnio. Of course ho
know but little of logistics or the details of
supplying and moving urmlos ,
but these are the purely technical branches
of the business that any well instructed oni-
cor can manage , and which were managed
with extraordinary ability hi our armies :
thus thov wore clearly beyond his sphere of
duty , and may bo neglected la an estimate of
his place la history as a military man. The
work of Nicolay and Hay contains many dis
patches , letters and documents , and many In
teresting chapters , such as these relating to
the "Trent affair" and ito the rebel cruisers ,
and also to the able administration of the
navy by Mr. Welles and bis subordinates ,
throwing light upon LlmjrtLn's extraordinary
character as the head of the government In a
great military crikis ; but , to comment fully
upon thorn would require a volume. No ono
can road thorn dispassionately without reachIng -
Ing the conclusion tlmt Lincoln was not only
a great statesman , but hi a larger souse a
great general , and a gvwatadministrator , the
greatest that this country over produced
